So Hot Right Now [Infograghic]

How peak energy consumption is effected by the hot summer months

Love it or hate it, the longer warmer days of summer are when many Americans take vacations, enjoy the outdoors and find creative ways to beat the heat. Apparently, the SaveOnEnergy team is particularly fond of summertime.  They partnered with Column 5, a design company, to take a closer look at how peak energy consumption is effected by the hot summer months compared to the other seasons. They also showed the correlation between renewables, fossil fuels, and traditional coal/nuclear generation during those same months. Lastly, they've highlighted the states with highest consumption in the U.S. Needless to say, the data speaks for itself.
